Choosing the right side table is easy, largely because there are so many choices out on the market these days. Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
Side tables are extremely useful in many facets in the home. First, they can be put in traditional locations such as beside a sofa, chair or other piece of furniture were you may be sitting and need to set something down on a table surface. But also, they can be used as a way to show off some of the things you have in your home. For instance, if you have a statue that you really like, a side table may be a perfect base to set that statue on. Additionally, many a side table are stackable, yet ready for any use that might be asked of them. Some of these tables can be tucked into a corner or under one another until they are needed.
Glass Side Tables. Many people choose glass side tables as the perfect accents to their homes. They can well be as long as they are well taken care of.
You should dust them off regularly. Dust that is left on the surface can be rubbed in and create scratches or damage to the finish. Try to dust your tables at least once a week.
Because side tables are small and light, they are also easy to move around so you can use them in different places around the room or even in different rooms. That way you can go about choosing the right side table for a number of rooms, not just one. For example, a side table can give you a little extra counter space in a cramped kitchen during the holidays or offer guests a little extra space in the bathroom to refresh themselves with some nice scents, soaps or oils.
In addition to choosing a unique shape, you can also have some fun choosing tables with all their attractive decorations. For example, if you have a Victorian setting in one room of your home you may want to choose a table that has beautiful roses painted on it or carved into it. Or, if you have a modern and contemporary look to your home, go for something that seems more industrial or Art Deco. You can even have fun looking for beautifully carved pieces of wood to go with a country or French romantic theme to your home.
